With the continuing economic downturn newspaper organizations are experiencing, there is significant pressure on both the advertising and circulation revenues. Sun Media is no exception and we continue to deal with these very difficult issues by looking at creative and innovative revenue generating ideas.
We have also been forced to look at reducing our operating costs in light of the economic climate. We have made some very difficult decisions and one such decision is to announce that Sun Media will be implementing a salary freeze for 2012.
I suppose one should try to be nice during the holiday season, but with my wife trying to dodge layoffs at The City and the Sun's op-ed writers screaming for inside worker's heads to roll, let me just say to everyone who works at that rag: may you all drown slowly in a sea of boiling blood.
